The music was coordinated by the always brilliant David Foster, who also did the music for such films as "St Elmo's Fire". It has a great selection of the pop tracks from the film as well as some of Fosters electronic score. A must for 80's officianados!
The Restless Heart track used in the movie has a different title (Something I Gotta Do) and different lyrics than the soundtrack version.
"Oh Yeah", the music-theme during the changing-the-bedrooms-scene in the country house at the end of the film, is written and played by the swiss-electro-duo Yello, a very succesful group in the international techno-scene. However, be warned, it's not present
on the soundtrack CD. [Thanks to Peter Baldinger]
